Perhaps back to the Frankensocks? Nope. I have an old tank top I want to revisit. I never did like the straps, and I have a batch of cream cotton perfect for the job. You can see it here. Weird little crocheted flowers. http://www.flickr.com/photos/babycocktails/230062271/ I think I'll be fixing that up next. It could be a good frequent flier. Nice and basic.

And Now Some Instant Gratification
Just two days and .... one baby hat for an old High School friend. She was promised something pink and knitted.
I used leftover Cotton Fleece and my Knitting on the Edge book to make this up. Only took a few tries to decide on a pattern idea. It's one repeat of Cable and Lace, and stocking stitch for the rest of the hat. I was inspired by Alison's little lace number and had a desire to make something frilly and feminine.
I thought about adding some of my vintage buttons to the edging, but seems like I'm gilding the lily here....
Sister Hats! This one gets two repeats of the pattern, so you can see the cables forming. But alas. I'm running out of yarn and don't want to change the color. That gratification might not be so instant after all.. The Knitting Room is closed till next week.
For anyone else thinking of a baby gift, have you seen Johanna's new booties?
She'll be selling them on Etsy ... check em out!
